  • Senegal will play against Colombia in their final group game

Colombia top the group with a narrow win over Senegal, whose elimination means no African team has qualified for the knockouts.

Rodriguez lasted only 30 minutes of their dramatic 1-0 victory over Senegal before being substituted, putting his participation in their last-16 match in doubt.

With the two games heading for 1-0 finishes, Japan was now heading through at Senegal's expense due to having accrued just four yellow cards to Senegal's six.

Senegal spent the final 20 minutes pushing for an equaliser which would have sent the African side through - AliouCisse's side were level with Japan in terms of points and goal difference, but crucially not yellow cards.

Four years ago Colombia played to the quarterfinals, finally falling to Brazil. James Rodriguez, arguably the star of the team and victor of the best young player award of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, was taken off in the first half with a suspected injury, so we'll have to see how he progresses before playing Belgium or England in the next round.

Colombia will face England on Tuesday in Moscow, while Japan goes on to face Belgium in Rostov-on-Don on Monday. Senegal had five yellows, while Japan had been assessed just three, meaning Samurai Blue would live to fight another day, and Senegal's World Cup run came to an end. The Colombians appeared as to regain form with a 3-0 victory over Poland. "Despite that we were leading twice and what is annoying were the two goals (conceded)". Teammate Radamel Falcao patted him on the back sympathetically as he headed to the sideline.

Mina rose highest in the box to power home his header pass Ndiaye in goal for Senegal.

Rodriguez returned to the team bench in the second half, in time to see Mina's header that gave Colombia the lead.

Here's how to watch Colombia vs. Senegal online.

Poland, which had already been eliminated, got its goal from defender Jan Bednarek in the 59th minute.

While it may not have been a vintage performance from Colombia, the achievement of qualification after losing the first group game is a remarkable one with Japan advancing by virtue of its disciplinary record.

Senegal, who had most of the better play in the first half, thought they had a penalty when Sadio Mane went down in the area on 17 minutes under a challenge from Davinson Sanchez. More importantly, he came through for Los Cafeteros when they most needed it. Sanchez received criticisms and a death threat, which is being investigated by Colombian authorities.

Colombia's fans cheer prior to their Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group H match against Senegal at the Samara Arena in Samara on June 28, 2018. Japan beat Colombia 2-1 to begin the tournament, while Senegal beat Poland by the same score. "This is one of the rules", their coach Aliou Cisse said.

Colombia midfielder Abel Aguilar was unavailable after he was injured and taken off the field on a stretcher in the first half against Poland.

Once it was confirmed their team would advance, wild celebrations lasted into the early hours of Friday morning. "We have fewer points in fair play and Senegal doesn't qualify because we don't deserve it", Cisse said after the game. Attendance was announced at 41,970.

Yerry Mina scored the only goal.
